^^ that’s about right!
No surprise on 1-4, but #5 took me by surprise–what is Bow Pop, and how could it make my top 5 if I don’t know what it is?! Google failed to turn up a definition. From what I can piece together based on Spotify’s playlist entitled “Bow Pop,” it appears the genre is kind of a modern spin on classical. The Piano Guys and 2Cellos are two well-known names that come up in the playlist.
Winter saw 52 streams of Shai Linne, tied by 52 streams of Billy Boyd (who actually only has one song…), with a runner-up of 42 streams of The Celtic Woman.
Spring saw 140 streams of Elliott Park, followed by 117 streams of Alan Jackson, and 99 streams of Peter Hollens.
Summer saw 128 streams of Alan Jackson, 79 streams of Hans Zimmer, and 60 streams of Peter Hollens.
Fall saw 71 streams of Alan Jackson, 34 streams of Johnny Cash, and 32 streams of Andrew Peterson.
My Top Artist list is skewed by the fact that I have playlists set up for my younger siblings and they listen to their playlists as much as I listen to mine. We have several shared favorites, so artists like Peter Hollens, Elliott Park, and Piano Guys, end up jumping disproportionately to the top. Here’s how I would rank my top artists for 2015:
1. Alan Jackson
2. Billy Boyd
3. Johnny Cash
4. Brad Paisley
5. Elliott Park
(6.) Josh Turner
And my Top Playlists I would wager were:
1. Your Pain in My Heart (sad country)
2. Beyond the Walls of the World (misc. soundtracks)
3. Love Me Some Alan Jackson
4. Brighter Days (happy country)
